Another Spell in the Classroom.

Another long hard day at the chalkface [actually it is a dry-wipe whiteboard...but that doesn't sound so good] followed by a great time at Sewing Club at Church. Two more new members tonight, and they are all so enthusiastic.

I shall only post briefly tonight, as it's late and I'm tired. My apologies to anyone who has had difficulties posting comments recently - apparently this has been a widespread problem, not just with my blog - I hope that the glitch has been ironed out now.

Part of my day was spent marking the work done with yesterday's Supply Teacher. An assessment of their knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes. So there were such gems as

and the one which I felt showed the most creative spelling I had seen for a long, long time










the rectangle was labelled CWOJWIACHUL

...which is how an eight year old spells QUADRILATERAL!!

The herbal sleep tablets worked well last night - so well that I fell asleep halfway through CSI. Feeling so tired tonight I don't think I need them.


  1. Lol good spelling! :)

    How can you fall asleep during CSI, the ending was very interesting! But I suppose you didn't see the ending! :)

  2. You mean quadrilateral isn't spelled CWOJWIACHUL? Well, that explains my low college board scores ...

    Glad the herbal sleep tablets worked. I find more and more that a good night's sleep is one of life's greatest pleasures! That and chocolate, of course.


  3. I'm having a giveaway for my 50th post. Please stop by & leave a comment!!!!! Marie x

  4. Sarah - Fortunately Bob was sitting beside me - and filled me in on whodunnit!

    Frances- I do so agree with you about a good night's sleep. I am SO grateful that Bob has recovered from his sleep apnoea now.

    Marie - happy anniversary!

  5. Cute post! Love the spelling!

  6. Thanks for popping by my blog and for your encouraging words. I think blogger snafued your comment, but it came through in an email to me.

    I love the spelling ~ just as well you explained it cos I wouldn't have noticed it meant something otherwise. It is something my middle daughter would've done at that age though!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
